Ms. Collins retired in 2018 from a career as Project Manager and Consultant in the field of School Facilities Planning. In 2019, as a result of a speech by Sacramento City Council Member Angelique Ashby, Michelle became aware that, not only was there only one woman on the Sacramento City council, but that women officials were not sufficiently represented in other city and county offices in Sacramento as well. Council Member Ashby also stressed why it was important for women to be “at the table.” As a result, Michelle was inspired to join NWPC Sacramento to develop, support, and fund women candidates for local and statewide offices.
Michelle is a native Californian, raised and educated in the Central Valley, and she lived in Los Angeles as a young adult. She moved to Sacramento in the early 1980’s, and joined the Sacramento Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) to promote women’s issues. She worked on campaigns to pass the Equal Rights Amendment and for local political candidates. She likes to travel, do volunteer work, and supports local charities and arts organizations.
